Libby + Ben | Contemporary Art Museum Wedding

Planning a wedding is a daunting task, even when you have the luxury of living in the city in which your wedding will take place. Libby + Ben planned their St. Louis wedding while living in New York, and with the help of Melody and her team from Absolutely In Events, they pulled off an extraordinarily stylish, modern, and memorable affair for their guests - many of which traveled quite a distance to be preset.

There was so much about Libby + Ben’s wedding that we loved. The clean aesthetics of the Contemporary Art Museum and the Pulitzer are an absolute dream, however, what we loved the most were the emotions, which will forever be our favorite thing to document. After Libby’s dad saw her for the first time in her wedding gown, I knew the day was going to be an absolute doozy. Libby + Ben’s vows were some of the most honest and poignant ones I’ve ever heard, and I related to them on an incredibly personal level. I caught myself wiping a tear from my eye several times throughout the day. We’re no experts, but in the short time that we spent with Libby + Ben, we can easily tell that whatever that mysterious thing is that makes a marriage work, these two definitely have it.

We are endlessly thankful to be given the opportunity to meet such wonderful people through our line of work. We love the images from this day, we hope you will too.
